The following outline meets the minimum requirements of section 8(d) of the Small Business Act, as
amended, and implemented by Federal Acquisition Regulations (FAR) Subpart 19.7. While this outline has
been designed to be consistent with statutory and regulatory requirements, other formats of a subcontracting
plan may be acceptable. It is not intended to replace any existing corporate plan that is more extensive.
Failure to include the essential information of FAR Subpart 19.7 may be cause for either a delay in
acceptance or the rejection of a bid or offer when a subcontracting plan is required. “SUBCONTRACT,” as
used in this clause, means any agreement (other than one involving an employer-employee relationship)
entered into by a Federal Government prime contractor or subcontractor calling for supplies or services
required for performance of the contract or subcontract.

If assistance is needed to locate small business sources, contact the Office of Small and
Disadvantaged Business Utilization (OSDBU) at 202.690.7300 or the OPDIV Small Business
Specialist at ______________. Sources may also be obtained from the Central Contractor
Registration’s (CCR) web site at http://www.ccr.gov.

For this procurement, HHS expects all proposed subcontracting plans to contain the following goals at a
minimum: 34% for Small Business; 6.4% for Small Disadvantaged Business; 5.0% for Women-Owned Small
Business; 3.0% for HUBZone Small Business; and 3.0% for Veteran-Owned Small Business and Service-
Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Business. These goals shall be expressed as percentages of the total
estimated subcontracting dollars. The offeror is required to include an explanation for a category that
has zero as a goal.

NOTE TO CONTRACTORS: Please provide your CCR number with your Dunn & Bradstreet number.

   9. Description of Good Faith Effort

       Maximum practicable utilization of small, small disadvantaged, women-owned, HUBZone, veteran-
       owned, and service-disabled veteran-owned small business concerns as subcontractors in
       Government contracts is a matter of national interest with both social and economic benefits. When a
       contractor fails to make a good faith effort to comply with a subcontracting plan, these
       objectives are not achieved, and 15 U.S.C. 637(d) (4) (F) directs that liquidated damages shall
       be paid by the contractor. In order to demonstrate your compliance with a good faith effort to
       achieve the small, small disadvantaged, women-owned, HUBZone, veteran-owned, and service-
       disabled veteran-owned small business subcontracting goals, outline the steps your company plans to
       take. These steps will be negotiated with the contracting officer prior to approval of the plan.
